There were a few chuckleworthy moments in this book (by favorite was when he asked the Hartz Mountain Corp. if they were the same people who rented cars). Altogether, though, it was repetitive and tiresome. Several letters are asking if he can wear a costume (of a shrimp, or a stick of butter) in a casino or on a bus; some are about losing something ridiculous and asking if had been found (like an otter's toupe, or a missing tooth); several about bringing something inane with him to a hotel (like a 8'x3' mirror, or his own mattress, or drapes, or red ants). There, now I've saved you several hours of your life because you don't have to read it. :o)

This book was really funny in spots.It hadme shaking my head at the insane letters that Nancy wrote and the ridiculous responses he got from companies trying not to offend this obvious nutjob.

Written by Ted L. Nancy with intro by Jerry Seinfeld.
Inside cover reads:
He is, in reality, a supremely off-kilter alter ego who sends patently ridiculous letters and queries to (and receives surprisingly earnest responses back from) corporate honchos, entertainment conglomerates, national publications, politicians, celebrities and heads of state - to everyone. In fact, from the president of the Bon Ami Cleanser Company to U.S. vice president Al Gore.

A totally inventive book by a man with a maniacal sense of the ridiculous. Even funnier than the outrageous, hilarious letters and requests, are the pleasant and patient replies from the representatives of large, famous companies. Would it be O.K. if I gambled in your Las Vegas hotel while dressed in my shrimp costume? Because I look exactly like Abraham Lincoln, would I be pestered for autographs while eating at your hotel? Just to give you some idea.

This book is just about guaranteed to give you some ideas and reading it is without a doubt, a laugh-out-loud experience. It is also a great book to give as a gift to someone who can use a laugh - someone in the hospital, on the road to getting well, in need of something to brighten their day, in the middle of a divorce or celebrating a birthday.

This book is downright goofy. It is a guaranteed giggle if not a knee-slapping laugh. I still think Jerry Seinfeld is the culprit behind it all. Even if we never know who Ted Nancy really is - it is fun and worth having around for pick me ups. I let a friend borrow it who was healing after an operation because laughter is the best medicine. She cracked herself right up into healing! I recommend to anyone with a sense of silly humor.
